1. London: East End British Food & Drinks Private Walking Tour

Eat and drink like a Londoner on this private dining tour of London's East End.

Start your tour through the charming streets of East London and stop at one of the most interesting places in London: a café in the middle of a medieval church. Taste the most authentic British pastries accompanied by a classic tea or coffee. Next, it's time to try the classic London dish: fish and chips. Enjoy this dish with a cold beer while your local guide tells you the darkest stories of Jack the Ripper, a famous character from the 19th century who murdered his victims in the same area where your tour takes place. Visit one of the best pubs in London while you taste the typical "Scotch egg", a popular pub dish in Great Britain consisting of a hard-boiled egg inside sausage meat that has been shredded and baked or fried. Finally, sample the classic English pie, a traditional British dish consisting of a puff pastry filled with a rich sauce and slowly cooked meat or vegetables. Savor these pies served with a craft beer or wine in a beautiful English tavern with a buzzing atmosphere.

My guide was Kevin. Excursion on the theme of the markets of London. Everything was fascinating and very interesting. Besides the fact that Kevin met me near the house, and also took me home, he was also able to interest and show many beautiful places in London. Kevin also spoke quite clearly and simply.

The photography was about half an hour, Ewa photoed me and she is great. She recommended several spots and photoed very professionally. Very enjoyable photoing and wonderful pictures.
